Event details

Learn about different types of ‘Marvellous Microbes’ with our family friendly interactive demonstrations. Explore how microbes could stop the spread of tropical diseases and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Discover how researchers at the University of York’s Department of Biology are targeting specific body molecules inside the ‘smelly’ microbes to prevent body odour and get to know your own microbiome. Plus, find out what you want to know about life as a scientist at our ‘Ask a scientist’ stand.
